Damn scary proposition.
Well, do you know how autonomous vehicles work, and at least a bit about the software involved? I am sorry, but saying autonomous drones that we use
today will become conscious is based on vague theories without any hard facts at best.
And sure you could maybe bring the internet into play, and the immense number of computers and servers and god knows what they could all do together.
Well again, if you know a bit about networks and ip-protocols and how they actually work, then you will have to come to the conclusion that there is
no ground in reality for the consciousness theory. At least not where we are now.
I am sure that a.i. will produce results that can mimic a real person quite well. And that is not too far in the future and will make a lot of sense
in various applications.
But that is still far away from being a conscious being. In fact I think it is a touch arrogant to assume that it is that "easy" to create
Well, we will see what happens anyway. Technological development is inevitable.
